Medical Form

Join us as we tiptoe up frozen waterfalls.  Come learn the fundamentals of this incredibly unique form of climbing while enjoying two full days in the beauty of a Northeastern winter. 

Emphasis is on front pointing and belayed technical climbing - techniques best suited to the steep water ice typically found in the Northeast.  Covers equipment, German technique (front pointing), tool selection and placement, and winter safety and comfort. 

Attendance Policy:  Attendance at all classes is mandatory.  The alternate outing on 3/6/16 will only be used if an earlier class is cancelled due to weather.
